Zero V's new solo album, his debut release for his ON-Mix productions label. Zero V set aside a few months to write and record the album. He has created a collection of songs that take you on a journey. The compositions were crafted from improvisational sessions in his studio. Working entirely alone Zero V has created an emotional raw, minimal work of excitement and dark beauty. Although there are elements in his previous body of work that hint at the direction taken here the CD, entitled...

A fusion of '90s electro and its requisite Twin Peaks fixation with the hilarious concept feel of a Parliament-Funkadelic LP, Nameless sees Zero V on a continuing mission to "publish whatever possible!" Included are remixed versions of demo tracks from his unpublished album 'To Dance or Not To Dance' and new tracks which make up for a slight lack of ideas of the re-release of 'Leaves of Grass'. "Thinks" works around the drone from a moog and the occasional radiowaves are... Topics: Electro, Electronic, Acid, Drone, Chill, Lounge, Down-tempo, Disco, ON-Mix Media, Zero V, Ketelhaven
This is the 10th release of Zero V on this label. This time it is a soulfull ep entitled 'Conflict of Emotions'. Less experimental, and more rounded songs. It is an exciting follow-up to its predecessor 'Freaky & Funky'. Again Zero V has recorded, played and produced this ep.

Zero V's latest work. Completely different from his last epic album "Songs of Parting", he now heads for the dancefloor. Although all the songs have Zero V's twist - what is going on in this man's mind? - it is definitely his most transparant album to date. It starts of with a tongue in cheek song, where Girly, Nathalia and the man himself are caught on tape while discussing a few things in a bar (as it seems...). This song, entitled "Intro (Gossip Mix)", started of with the... Topics: zero v, on-mix, sequenced, synthesis, dance, electronic, ketelhaven, the netherlands, samples,... Source: MP3
Streamlining the muted, organic atmospheres of the previous Songs of Parting to forge a more cohesive listening experience, Agree to Disagree is arguably Zero V's most accessible record, a delicate, jazz/world music-inflected work boasting elegant arrangements. Impeccably produced by Zero V, the songs are stripped to their bare essentials, making judicious use of the synths, tape loops, and treated pianos which bring them to life; rendering standouts like "Twinkling" and...

Instrumentalist Zero V is in excellent form playing, recording and producing the exciting follow-up to "The Hard Changing of the Seasons". More mellow than its predecessor, but more experimental exploring the boundaries of the NU-Jazz phenomenon. The EP kicks off with a mellow jazz track called "Don't Rush". Followed by a more funky track "Only Fools". The third track "Come & Play" consists of a dominant role for the horn and his old rhodes. The last...

"It's a closure for me, which means I can move on towards the things I really want to do." Zero V said.

Instrumentalist Zero V is in excellent form playing, recording and producing one of his finest albums. The music does reach the excitement level of the Agree to Disagree session, this music (particularly the long ambient track) really shows off the man's appealing tone. This CD is rounded out by three titles that Zero V created while remembering his father's love for jazz music. He managed to capture the excitement and joyfullness of those sessions in the 50s and 60s. Influenced by people like...

After an album and a few EPs of baffling, mood and style swings, Zero V is definitely due for a change. Zero V has never turned in a substandard production. Something less than a radical reinvention, L.A. Riot does return the man to the more inviting climes of past masterpieces like Twinkling (if not Heaven). The record is immediately more back to his roots than his last one Nameless, with less focus on his trademarked random-beat-making software. A few melodies, suitably obtuse and wispy,...

Mixing drones and soundscapes, Zero V creates a number of siren songs on Fluidity that shimmer like light reflected on the water’s surface. The minimalist musician has gained some attention with the piece “Stones”; featured here, it reveals the unhurried and unfolding nature of Zero V’s melodies. The opening “Fluidity” is the musical equivalent of a meditation session, it’s initially lovely, yet the soothing arrangement saps the piece of its spellbinding effect before long. The...

The past six or seven months Zero V has been working on a new EP. ‘Elysian Fields‘. Just like its predecessor ‘Conflict of Emotions‘ it will be a neo-soul/nu-jazz oriented piece of work. 4 tracks: - Isles of the Blessed - Work and Days - Twelfth Night - An Old Haunt Zero V deliberately took the same path as with ‘Conflict of Emotions’. Carefully crafted songs that are coherent in their own way. Topics: Zero V, Elysian Fields, neo soul, nu jazz, on-mix, music, mp3
